Raw Almond Fudge

These bite-size fudgey beauties are SO delicious. Perfect as an energy-boosting snack or sweet treat after a meal. Almonds are amazing, as they are fully loaded with Vitamin E, which will keep your skin glowing and looking beautiful. I've used both the whole nut and butter form for double the goodness- oh yeahhh! As well, these nuts contain heart-healthy fats and anti-oxidants. This is what eating healthy is all about - enjoying nourishing food which also tastes amazing!

Makes 10 bites

110g Pitted Medjool Dates
90g Almonds
50ml of Water
3 tablespoons of Almond Butter
3 tablespoons of Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons of Cacao Powder
2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt

  1. Simmer pitted dates in saucepan with water, and a pinch of salt, for 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Line a small tin or tupperware box with greaseproof paper.
  3. Blend almonds for a few minutes on high speed until they've broken down quite significantly.
  4. Remove dates from heat and allow to cool.
  5. Add almond butter, cacao powder, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to the blender with the almonds. Blend for a minute or so, until well combined.
  6. Add dates and blend mixture until a gooey dough forms.
  7. Remove dough from blender and place into lined line/tupperware.
  8. Pop lid on and freeze for 2 hours before serving.
  9. Keep fudge in the freeze, then remove when you'd like to eat. They shouldn't need that long to defrost - a minute or so.
